Seven-time Grammy-winner TobyMac has released a bold new music video for his 2018 single "I Just Need U." and it is available to stream exclusively for 48 hours only on Amazon Music, starting today. The music video is directed by Eric Welch and filmed panoramically on location in the Southern California desert.
Speaking about the music video shoot, the artist says, "I loved making the music video to 'I just need U.' This song is so personal and real for me. Letting go of strongholds and turning back is never easy and this storyline captured that tension. Add to that a classic convertible, wolves, things blowing up into flames... it made for some real 'do not try this at home' moments. I love when imagery to a song takes people on a journey."
TobyMac recently returned home from headlining his 2018 "HITS DEEP Tour," selling out arenas in 18 markets, including cities like Sacramento, St. Louis, Phoenix, Denver, Grand Rapids, Minneapolis, and San Antonio. In Portland, Ore., 11,000 fans came out to watch the show, setting a new record for the largest Christian show ever to play the arena.
The "HITS DEEP Tour" featured a world-class lineup, with artists such as Danny Gokey, Mandisa, Ryan Stevenson and Finding Favour. The 2018 leg of the tour was a partnership with K-LOVE, Air1, Awakening Events, and Food for the Hungry.
Reflecting on the tour, TobyMac says, "The 'HITS DEEP Tour' 2018 had a little bit of everything...depth, passion, laughter, community, and purpose. Disa [Mandisa], Gokey, Ryan Stevenson, Finding Favour and rookie Aaron Cole all delivered on stage every night."
"Backstage felt like family from day one until the last show from crew to staff to drivers and bands," he recollects. "I've always wanted everyone to feel invited into my music as well as our shows. And playing the big arenas downtown city to city tears down walls and makes everyone feel welcome! Our partners AE, K-LOVE & Air1 and FH (KTIS & JoyFM) helped us to pack arenas with diverse listeners of all demographics!!"
